Description

A 2017 Nautilus Gold Award winner.

Feel like you don’t belong? You’re not alone. The world has never been more connected, yet people are lonelier than ever. Whether we feel unworthy, alienated, or anxious about our place in the world, the absence of belonging is the great silent wound of our times.

Most people think of belonging as a mythical place, and they spend a lifetime searching for it in vain. But what if belonging isn’t a place at all? What if it’s a skill that has been lost or forgotten?

With her signature depth and eloquence, Toko-pa maps a path to belonging from the inside out. Drawing on myth, stories, and dreams, she takes us into the origins of our estrangement, reframing exile as a necessary initiation into authenticity. Then she shares the competencies of belonging: a set of ancestral practices to heal our wounds and restore true belonging to our lives and to the world.

Love love love

This book is not one I just listened to, there are so many exerts I wanted to right down and ponder, I had to also buy the book. Wonderfully written and one I will be “studying” for some time.

Could not listen

I could not listen to this book. The way she speaks and the gasping for air is too distracting. I wish I had bought the book instead of this, I tried but I really couldn’t bare it. Unfortunate that no one in the process of making the audio book noticed it wasn’t working ??

Poor quality

I’m upset because the audio quality was terrible. I didn’t enjoy the narrator’s speaking style—not her voice but how she spoke: It felt patronizing in so many ways. There was some amazing parts of this book but overall I felt letdown.

Mixed Messages

I was excited for the content of this book, but the author really isn’t the best to narrate it. I found her way of narrating to be very dramatic, distracting me from the story- and clearly she is still very resentful of her past, which sets a negative tone to the whole story. I found myself unable to receive the message because of these two things. In my opinion belonging isn’t something we seek out of rebellion to those who didn’t accept us.

My favourite book on Audible.

This book has become a treasured companion and I listen to it often for inspiration, meditation, reflection and even as a lullaby.
It moves me and comforts me like a warm and wise friend arriving at my door with soup and homemade bread.

Relevant content, flawed delivery

The content of this book is very relevant to the person seeking self knowledge / improvement. The problem with this audio version is not the message, but the messenger. The author/reader gasps quite loudly at the end of every sentence, and it takes away the attention from what she is saying. I was wondering if I had turned a bit too purist on the vocal quality, so I paid attention to the other book I was listening to at that point, one of Harry Potter's books read by Stephen Fry. If I pay close attention to the sound I can manage to hear the moment when he inhales after reading a whole paragraph, but it is soft enough to be ignored. Unfortunately in this book that is not the case (for me). I would suggest to you that (GASP) you'd be better reading the text version (GASP) of this very important material (GASP). At least, listen to a sample to gauge what I'm talking about.

This book will always remain downloaded on my device

Toko-pa’s book has become my bible and her self narrated audio version it’s song.
I cannot rate it high enough through my own inadequate words. And it’s not just for women. I gifted a copy to my neighbor and her husband READ IT FIRST!
Took-pa is tapped into a source you’ll recognize. And her astonishing, beautiful articulation not only lights the way home, but will embolden you to bravely trust that you can find it to too. I couldn’t be more grateful.

Deep nourishment in troubling times

I just finished listening to this absolutely fantastic book by the deeply cherished Toko-pa Turner .
It is hard to put into words what a tender and evocative gift she has woven with her luminous words and delicious voice. For hours I felt myself wrapped and held by her excellent reading, and the topics of belonging, living on this planet at this crucial moment in time, dreaming and most of the depth and breadth that make a life. Such a heartening, fortifying and just plain BEAUTIFUL book. Do yourself a huge favor, let Toko-Pa read to you.....even if you have read the book already, listen to it and blossom into a whole new appreciation of the wisdom and beauty through the tender care of her voice. ❤️❤️❤️

Poor quality audio

The author was not taught breath control resulting in a never ending rhythm of gasps and thinly spoken words all held in a malaise like mood that had a depressing affect. Much of the content was interesting but ultimately the author is a fatalist and gives a nod to the incredible harmful new age myth that abuse or trauma are necessary part of one finding ones gifts and paths. To me this represents an unexamined need for certainty of meaning where respect for mystery and the limits of our understanding are a better fit.

Pseudo belonging

I can’t get past how often she puts down ‘friends’ (ie a friend is a lovely singer, but rather than celebrating her own voice, she tears down her friend by calling it sickeningly sweet and fake — one example of many). Some insights, yes, but a lot of vilifying others rather than accepting their faults as human. People can accidentally hurt you, and not be villains.

Less about community and belonging than I wanted, more about dealing with how to feel when people you love disappoint you, and you aren’t ready to forgive them.

Absolutely love!

This may be one of my favorite, most cherished books of all time. Love her so much, feel so blessed to have experienced this book by having Toko-pa read it to me! Can’t recommend more for healing, root reweaving, and so much more magic!

Let yourself be sung alive

Toko-pa’s writing and narration is pure poetry, her story a true inspiration and the wisdom shared a gift to human kind.

For the soul

A powerful voice of the feminine, nurturing and healing! For some reason there was audio jumping back and forth here and there (especially in the middle book, sadly I didn't take note when... :/), perhaps it could be fixed?

A book about needing self EXACTLY what I Need!!!!!

Listening to Toko-pa Turner read this manifesto of wisdom, is like being invited into a beautiful living diary of what knowledge she seems a guru. I heard that a single person disliked the Performance, but I think almost everyone will instead love it because it is an introduction to this person, it is like sitting with her by a camp fire and hearing what she knows. Her voice is so full and awake.

Now, I have been fascinated with dreams for a long time, and am humbled to learn of her dream work. I love that she says "dreaming is nature naturing through us". That it is a biological necessity, personal gateway, and sensitivity.

Frankly, Toko-pa Turner has a language skill that I have rarely ever read, the way she chooses her words and pulls them together in a delicate syntax.

Toko-pa Turner is the wise woman who is teaching me the beginning of understanding myself. Her "otherness within" blows my capacities open.

Write more, publish more, be well!!
